Nederburg ‘The Winemaster's’ Chardonnay
- Vintage: 2021
- Origin: Nederburg region - Western Cape - South Africa
- Taste guide: Understated typical citrus aromas vie with stone fruit such as nectarine and white peach – which are all present on the palate too. There’s a riper, subtle element of pear and quince which comes through, again with a gentle creamy vanilla oak nuance from clever use of both new and older oak barrels.
- 75cl - 14% - screwcap
- Food pairing: Delicious with Thai and other Oriental dishes, as well as smoked salmon, grilled fish and dishes made with cream-based sauces.
Nederburg has a long wine-making history stretching back over 200 years to 1791 when Phillipus Bernadus Wolvaart was granted ownership of 49 hectares of land, in what is now Paarl, by the Dutch East India Company. He called his new property Nederburgh and immediately set about clearing land and planting vines. By 1808 he has planted over 63,000 vines laying the foundations for what was to become the wine company we know today. Nederburg has changed hands many times through the years but is now owned by the large South African wine and spirit company, Distell. Multi-talented cellar-master Andrea Freeborough has lead the the team of highly-skilled Nederburg winemakers, who work closely under her direction, since 2015.
